So, looks as if W6 has itself a bit more competition too with SOF and OTP (and TSR already announced).
Ryanair has held back expansion through lack of aircraft and went for increasing profits instead, a sensible move given the way oil prices went through the roof. Unfortunately it meant a lot of airports lost routes.

Now with lots of new aircraft and low oil prices the expansion restarts.

BOH-DUB

Is there any desire within FR to bring this route back? Why was it ever dropped?

easyJet BOH base

U2 apparently reviewed a potential base at BOH with the following route studies being completed (but no timeline):

Faro, Funchal, Palma, Bordeaux, Nice, Gibralter, Seville, Almeria, Barcelona & Venice

Would this affect FR ops?

Nope, children's fantasies won't affect FR ops.

Back to the real world.

Flew on one of the new 738's this morning, it was one of those delivered apparently, the new narrower seats definitely give a lot more extra room.

Not yet sure on the overhead lockers though interior a definite improvement.

I do however like the new Uniform for cabin crew which changed today, looks really smart.

Ryanair to drop Oslo Rygge base?

Local newspaper Moss Avis reported Monday that Ryanair’s summer flight program would continue as planned, but that the airline would drop flights from Rygge at the end of October if the tax proposal goes through.

Yes I noticed for the first time today Ryanair crew wearing the new uniforms. Look very smart, although haven't seen the new interiors as yet.

Ryanair seems to have loaded the schedules for pretty much all of Italy for Winter 2016/17. Everything currently showing as "Sold Out" but that's how it normally starts off. Seems to be quite an increase in UK routes that are currently summer only routes...

Birmingham to Verona
Bristol to Milan-BGY and Venice-TSF
East Midlands to Rome-CIA
Edinburgh to Bologna
Liverpool to Pisa

Plus...

Edinburgh to Rome-CIA increases from 3x to 5x weekly
Manchester to Milan-BGY and Rome-CIA both increase from 7 to 9x weekly

Ryanair at Newcastle

Think Ryanair needs to increase its presence here in Newcastle, DUB flight could do with being twice a day everyday as load factors are well above 90% on most flights. The new AGP and ALC flights are good but times coming back to NCL are dreadful and not suited for most of the travelling PAX. FLYBE are dropping the STN route, maybe a good idea for FR to pick this up and trial it? We could do with new destinations as well from NCL.

Northeasterner,

Good suggestion re Ryanair doing STN, though EasyJet did the route for a long time after inheriting it from GO. Given so many have tried it I'd be surprised and moreover Ryanair had other of domestic routes ex STN that got caned including Blackpool and Newquay.. I'd suggest unlikely.

Why are the times not convenient from AGP/ALC?

Two things - first, with Ryanair PAX they buy primarily on price, timing is secondary.

Second, if FlyBe can't make a DH4 pay on NCL/STN I'm at a loss to see how FR could with an aircraft more than twice the capacity - and that's before you even take into account the domestic APD which makes all but the principal truck routes less viable.

Surely, unless you want to travel to Essex (does anyone want to travel to Essex?) getting to London is best done by rail from Newcastle?

Shame no Milan to Newcastle.
Hopefully if Newcastle gets more flights this coming winter it gets announce then.

Ryanair needs to offer more flights from Newcastle and build up some trust from the local people.

Yes it seems that FLYBE seem to drop the routes after taking all the discount. FLYBE ops quite not steady and often change all the time. At the moment the flight is being picked up by LoganAir sold via FLYBE and operated by BMI Regional.

Leaving at 6AM-7AM in the mornings. Which isn't ideal if you're on holiday.

Two things - first, with Ryanair PAX they buy primarily on price, timing is secondary.

I can see from that point of view, but the prices FLYBE are charging £50+ (1 way) could potentially be beaten by Ryanair's low prices.

Shame no Milan to Newcastle.

Milan would be a good destination, EasyJet don't serve the route nor do Jet2. Only possible via LHR.

Didn't FR fly NCL-BGY about 10 years ago? I remember looking at going in my student days when they had £15rtn tickets!

Malpensa

Quite a few new routes moving right onto easyJet's existing market ex Malpensa, like Catania with 5 flights a day v easyJet's 4. Brussels BRU is a significant jump also in capacity on the route, with both carriers with 2 daily in each direction.


Malpensa is a very significant base of some scale for easyJet and this would appear to be the first major signal of intent of a move onto easyJet routes ex MXP, of which easyJet has 57 from the airport. Ryanair will now have a total of 8 routes from MXP.


It would appear that the challenge that Ryanair is putting up to easyJet is intensifying across the network...

Interesting that FR will create a base in Nurnberg - having currently only 3 destinations from the airport coming from a high of 6 routes. I can only see one aircraft being based here. I would have though Memmingen would be more appropriate. Any news if Munich will be added to route network and when Hamburg will be confirmed as a base?
